How can data center infrastructure be managed like ‘infrastructure as code’?
HPE Synergy Composer provides native infrastructure management for efficiently matching compute, storage, and fabric resources to meet any workload. ‘Infrastructure as code’ capability provides on-demand delivery and support of applications and services with consistent governance, compliance, and integration. This is a paradigm shift in managing infrastructure. Software-defined architecture auto-discovers and self-assimilates HPE Synergy resources for immediate use with template-driven operations. This intelligence increases the speed, efficiency, and reliability of operations. HPE Composer deploys, monitors, and updates the infrastructure from a single interface or from the Unified API. HPE Synergy infrastructure supports virtualized, containerized, and bare metal workloads for traditional and cloud environments. Resources can be updated, flexed, and redeployed with minimal service interruptions.
Can HPE Synergy provision physical servers at cloud-like speed? Using HPE Synergy Image Streamer, you can rapidly change images on multiple compute nodes in an automated manner. HPE Synergy Image Streamer works with HPE Synergy Composer to rapidly deploy and update multiple physical compute nodes. Operating environment images for bare-metal use might boot directly into a running OS, or virtual machine (VM) hosts might perform quick image changeovers. This 'infrastructure-as-code' capability maximizes your return on your systems investment by quickly delivering applications and services and by enabling rapid workload switching (across Linux, ESX, or MS Windows). Enhanced profiles provide true stateless images, which are automatically integrated with server hardware configurations and operating environment images for simplicity of use. Programmatic access is also provided through the Unified API. Integrate, automate, and customize your operations using HPE Synergy Image Streamer.
